Malware hack could be the biggest bank heist ever

Banks in Russia, Japan, the US, and Europe have apparently succumbed to a massive, sophisticated malware hack that allowed the perpetrators to steal hundreds of millions of dollars since 2013.

Hack could be the largest bank heist ever

According to a Kaspersky Labs report that was sent to the New York Times, around 100 banks in 30 countries were affected by the security breach, with more than $300 million stolen in total.

No banks have come forward to even acknowledge the theft however, but experts are calling the attack possibly one of the largest bank heists ever carried out.
